Özet

Background: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a disorder characterized by repetitive episodes of complete or partial airway obstruction due to pharyngeal collapse during sleep. The pathogenesis of OSAS is still not clear, although studies showing that OSAS is caused mainly by upper respiratory tract stenosis mainly at nasopharynx. The purpose of this study is to show the paranasal sinus (PNS) pathologies and nasal cavity volume, nasopharynx volume and adenoid diameters of OSAS patients, and correlate the multi detector computed tomography (MDCT) findings with severity of the disease.
